I was looking for an image this morning on my Instagram account, and came across this friendly reminder. Thought this should be on my blog.
This quote (below) from living legend, Howard Terpning, is one of the reasons I'm doing 30 small works in November. While each piece does not visually indicate I've "grown" or "learned more" or "pushed myself" as an artist. Each piece does represent a problem I'm trying to solve. Be it working to put down paint in a limited amount of time to become more efficient with my work, or seeking geometric shapes inside of light and shadow, capturing an expression and likeness on a small surface, telling a story, or simply creating form by referencing a piece of fruit.
Keep your eye out for the piece that speaks to you most. Let me know if you would like to make arrangements for that piece, as many will be available for the Christmas Stroll on Saturday.
Thank you for following for the past 28 days.
There are only 2 days that remain, but my efforts in learning will not cease. Cheers to 2 more days! 🎉
"I'll never stop learning. There's so much that I don't know. The day that a painter says he knows it all, that's the day he should hang up his brush. The greatest thing about painting is to trying to improve and learn. That's just about the best part." Howard Terpning.
